    Doman looks to be quite nervous when I've watched him. He may be a little bit more comfortable at home, but I think Utah's D is going to give him more trouble than he can handle. It's definitely going to take him a lot more than just this season to develop.

    This game is definitely a toss up, mainly because BYU has a much improved defense, but I still think Utah's is quite a bit better. Can't wait for the game Saturday, Go Utes!!

    Robroy that's bold talk about a team that got dominated for 55:22 out of 60 minutes by an 8 loss Ole miss team without their starting qb's or Rb's who had 3 returning starters on that great 8 loss defence. Wow. Geting shut out for 55 min 22 sec before scoring a freek defensive touch down??

    All to end up not even gaining a SINGLE first down against texas in the 2nd half!! HAAAHAA

    I LOVE utah's chances on Sat!

    Ute fan here. What i can not believe is that the Utes qb is bad. sorry i just don't think he is good at all. The problem is their is no one behind him. Byu has a lot more QB's that can play. Come on whit u have to start getting more Qb's recrutited. I would be looking at the best JC QB that is out there.

    Robroy, If Utah is a Pac 12 "also ran" guess where BYU would be if they were in the Pac 12? Yep, right where Utah is right now minus the two BCS wins Utah has. Sorry, you were NOT INVITED. Thank you for your concern, but Utah will do fine.

    Both offenses stink right now. I predict a 13-10 Utah win, assuming our special teams can block long enough for Coleman Peterson to get a field goal off. What i don't understand is how certain BYU fans can predict future pac-12 mediocrity from the Utes. I know some of them hope, dream, and wish for it, but come on. This program has nowhere to go but up with an excellent coaching staff and the continous addition to depth they will gain from recruiting as a pac-12 school.

    The difference between Utah and BYU's offenses is the fact that Chow is not afraid to use his "weapons" whereas Doman is. If Doman will open up a little then BYU has a chance, if not, Utah wins this one. Did I say a little? Doman needs to open up a lot!!!

    That's bold talk from somebody whose team didn't even get 100 yards in the second half last week.

    As mediocre as the Ute offense has been in the last 2 games, I think they can win if Wynn plays the same way he has. It seems silly, but if there are no turnovers, I like the Utes odds. In games like these, that is a big deal.
    I would feel much better if they could get the ball rolling on offense though.

    The Utes destiny this year and far into the future is to be another mediocre PAC 12-14-16-20 also ran. World class receivers....please. All the Ute receivers will get Saturday is alot of exercise running up and down the field...without the football. Jordan W. is the only QB I have ever seen attempt a 9 foot pass and come up 5 feet short. I see alot of wounded ducks in his future.

    Speaking of "help wanted" ads, how's that Jake Heaps thing working out for you guys?

    We'll only need 17 at most to win Saturday.

    Utah 31
    byu 17

    Mark it Down. And after this joyful weekend we'll get to watch the next 2 weeks as byu starts the season 1-4. Again.

    After losing to Utah State.


    Meanwhile we still control our destiny all the way to the Rose Bowl!

    "Utah may have one of the best receiving corp in the nation next year..."

    but the 'Help Wanted' ad is still running for a QB to make it work.

    Devonte and Dres are amazing receivers and will be play makers all year long. Hold the phone, the news just gets better for next year with the additions of Anthony Denham and Josh Gordon as well as the return of Christopher and Anderson. Utah may have one of the best receiving corp in the nation next year.
